Śṛṅgaverāmbu (शृङ्गवेराम्बु) refers to “ginger water”, as mentioned in verse 3.23 of the Aṣṭāṅgahṛdayasaṃhitā (Sūtrasthāna) by Vāgbhaṭa.—Accordingly, “[...] one shall together with friends drink unvitiated āsava and ariṣṭa liqueur, rum, wine, and mead mixed with mango juice, offered by one’s love after (her) having tasted (them), [...] (moreover) ginger water [viz., śṛṅgaverāmbu], essence water, honey water, or nut-grass water. In groves cooled by southerly winds, discharging water on all sides, [...]”.

Note: Śṛṅgaverāmbu (“ginger water”) has been translated by sga-chu bskol (“boiled ginger water”), which agrees with the explanation given by the commentators except Candranandana (śuṇṭhīkvathitajala Arunadatta).
